Mike Soroka (Achilles) could return in late August

Braves GM Alex Anthopoulos says Mike Soroka (Achilles) could return in late August.

Fantasy Impact

Anthopoulos is "optimistic" that this could happen. Soroka recently had a follow up procedure after feeling renewed discomfort in his Achilles last month. He also dealt with a shoulder issue back in spring training. There's still a chance that we don't see the young righty at all this season, but Anthopoulos notes a late-season return isn't out of the cards just yet.

Mike Soroka to be re-evaluated in June

After initially ruling Mike Soroka (Achilles) out for the season, Braves manager Brian Snitker told the media that he misspoke and instead expects the 23-year-old to be re-evaluated in June. “I messed up today when I was on that little TV show," explained Snitker. “Soroka does have a chance of getting back, and I didn’t think he did. ... I just assumed when I saw him riding around on that scooter, there wasn’t a chance. But I got that wrong. I screwed up. It’s not the first, and it won’t be the last.”

Fantasy Impact

Injuries have plagued the youngster's career. He is 15-6 through 37 starts over three seasons, amassing a 2.86 ERA with 55 walks and 171 strikeouts. It's still possible that he remains out for all of 2021, but Snitker's clarification provides a glimmer of hope.

The 23-year-old has undergone two surgeries on his injured right Achilles since last summer. “He’s down for the year, and hopefully we’ll get him back next year, ” said Braves manager Brian Snitker. Soroka will look to make a full recovery and is expected to be ready by Spring Training of 2022.

Mike Soroka (Achilles) to undergo exploratory surgery due to discomfort

Braves RHP Mike Soroka is undergoing exploratory surgery in his Achilles after experiencing discomfort.

Fantasy Impact

This is brutal news for those who were hoping to have Soroka back soon. The right-hander recently underwent an MRI, which showed some reasons to be concerned. It's a wait-and-see game until we get more information.

Mike Soroka (Achilles, shoulder) not expected back before June

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports Braves RHP Mike Soroka (Achilles, shoulder) isn't expected back in the big league rotation before June.

Fantasy Impact

This was more or less expected after it was reported on Monday that Soroka still hadn't resumed throwing. The right-hander was working his way back from the Achilles injury before experiencing some shoulder soreness. Now he needs to build him arm strength back up. Fantasy managers are encouraged to continue stashing him in an IL slot wherever possible.
